I've got a Pentium 4 machine - the exact architecture is GenuineIntel x86 family 15 model 2 stepping 7. (I'm running Windows XP Pro, version 2002, Service Pack 3 with no problem.) This is a 32-bit machine, right?

Yes. At the most basic, x86 means 32 bit architecture. A 64-bit processor would be labeled x64.
The only way to learn anything is to question everything.
